How to enable HTML5 MP4 (H.264/AAC) video in Vivaldi for Linux, via an alternative FFMpeg library

How to enable HTML5 MP4 (H.264/AAC) video in Vivaldi for Linux, via an alternative FFMpeg library


The following is a quick guide to get this working on various Linux distros. As a side note, if you have Chrome installed alongside Vivaldi, Netflix should also work after making these changes. Alternatively, use my to fetch and extract Chrome's copy of Widevine, so that it can be used by Vivaldi.

If you don't have working Flash video and need that in addition, please refer to these instructions.

Note: This guide is primarrily aimed at users of Vivaldi stable releases. If it does not solve your issues, read this in addition.

#System Design Cheatsheet

Picking the right architecture = Picking the right battles + Managing trade-offs

##Basic Steps

  1. Clarify and agree on the scope of the system
  • User cases (description of sequences of events that, taken together, lead to a system doing something useful)
    • Who is going to use it?
    • How are they going to use it?

Dropbox has a long-standing bug with changing case of files and directories. This is a work around.

It renames the directoy name to name+1 and then to lowercase name.


  1. CatPants is renamed to CatPants1
  2. CatPants1 is then renamed to catpants
You can’t perform that action at this time.
